Sundar Pichai kicks off I/O 2018 by acknowledging the burger emoji incident

Today at Google I/O 2018 in Mountain View, California, Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Google, officially made an announcement regarding something that has impacted a large number of Android users.

Pichai spoke on the incident relating to Google’s bizarrely drawn cheeseburger, which featured cheese in an unlikely position. While it’s not clear if Pichai is apologizing for the placement of the cheese, he is at the least acknowledging it.

Pichai also made an announcement that Google is changing the beer emoji and joked that he wasn’t sure why the Google team located the foam floating above the beer, rather than resting on top of it as the laws of physics would decree.

Google fixed the burger emoji last year with the Android 8.1 update. While Pichai tweeted about the concern last year, it’s amusing that he took to the stage today to poke fun at the situation.
